Re: SQL Forum?

Thanks Wolfgang, I have 40+ years in system development - although 20 were mostly paper pushing :D - and am quite familiar with the development process. It is why I'm suggesting I can't commit to properly contributing toward a formal beta test. If we're less format about it, then I will gladly parti...

Re: SQL Forum?

The problem is I can't commit to properly beta testing with the beta process' s inherent documentation, test cases etc. etc. I DO need to be able to estimate the amount of effort the implementation will take in my application and even how it will be implemented - need to get back to a client using t...

dbgoto() : strange consumption of time

Environment/platform: XSharp 2.14.04, VS 2021 Hi friends, I have another strange issue. My converted code (Harbour –> XSharp) takes many times longer than the original Harbor code. I narrowed the issue down to a single line of code and that is a “dbgoto()” statement. I have an array (“sa_pm”) that i...

Re: Corruption detected on an index ... but NOT if index created within XSharp

Thank you Robert for your detailed response. For me, this is only an issue during the crossover phase where parts of the system will be in XSharp, the other in Harbour ... until all conversion is complete. I only employ the "soundex()" function for lookup by name where the exact spelling i...

Hi Robert,

I attached a ZIP with the DBF and the NTX's.

Re: Corruption detected on an index ... but NOT if index created within XSharp

Hi Gentlemen, I had run a test comparing the return values of Soundex() from both XSharp and Harbour – they return identical values. Re-Creating the problem I can’t give the data file to a third party – even anonymized. So instead, I created a DBF (IDXISSUE.DBF) with a few records and columns FIRSTN...

Re: Corruption detected on an index ... but NOT if index created within XSharp

Hi All,

For now, I've simply closed the index at fault to be able to continue - it's not needed for that particular function.

Does anyone have any idea of what's gone haywire with indexes that use the "soundex()" function as I outlined in my Nov 30 post?

Thanks.
Roland

Re: Corruption detected on an index ... but NOT if index created within XSharp

Well OK then. Detecting what the cause of this issues is took some doing. Eliminating code line by line didn’t directly highlight the issue and if anything, I ended up following red herrings. HOWEVER, it did appear to be “caused’ by a particular file/table name “BFMB.DBF” in my application. Since th...
